Samsung Infuse 4G Gingerbread Update Now Available

If you own a Samsung Infuse 4G then you know how painful of a wait it has been for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. AT&T and Samsung made a bold promise saying that the update would be out in August, and guess what? We’re now in February. No matter, because the update has finally arrived for the Infuse 4G and owners can now snag it through Samsung’s website.

That’s right, the update isn’t going to be rolling out Over-the-Air (OTA). You’re going to have to snag it manually which is probably a little frustrating for some of you but you’re just going to have to make do.

Oh, and if you own a Mac, you’re not going to be able to update with your computer.
